A royal 'thank-you'

Last year on this date, my friend Duane hosted a viewing party for the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton -- now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  You can see the original post here.  We also thought it would be fun to send a card congratulating the newlyweds.  My friends Barbara and Vicki brought a card to the party and we all signed it and sent it off and, well, really forgot about it.

Late last summer we received a very nice thank you card from the staff of either the couple (or somebody with connections to 'the palace').  I had been meaning to post pictures of the thank you for some time but other things came up so what better time than on the first anniversary of the wedding?

I have to admit that it was a thrill and a lot of fun to receive this card.  We certainly had a good time celebrating a wedding we didn't attend but when our congratulatory card was mailed we never expected any type of response.  I say, good manners all 'round!
